It was a surprise to me to read on another blog a while ago that there was a general feeling that Bobbi Brown make up was all getting a bit ‘samey’. I really hadn’t noticed, I must admit because I fall like an idiot on anything Bobbi…..BUT, the autumn look, ‘The Nude Collection’ looks suspiciously like ‘The Shimmering Nude Collection’ from last year. Seriously, I can’t see why anyone would want to basically duplicate the same look from 08, especially if they still have some Shimmering Nude left.

This has got to be the most BORING collection from BB EVER!
She’s been doing a variation on this theme every autumn for a few years now – the Nude on Nude (05), Chocolate (06), Stonewashed Nudes (07) and Shimmering Nudes (08)
That being said, she does it very well indeed, and I predict this palette will sell like hot cakes just like all the others.
I have always avoided Bobbi Brown as I hate her approach to makeup and all the “rules” her sales assistants are taught to indoctrinate into their customers… This collection looks deathly dull! Does not appeal to me at all, but then I’ve never really been a neutrals fan!
Yes I always think of BB as samey and safe, but then that is indeed her strongest suit so why mess with a good thing? BB is not aimed at “collectors” the way, say, MAC is, so I suppose it’s a different marketing strategy.
I have this vision that one day the time will come when I’ll hurl all my bright eyeshadows and blushers with their risqué names away, and get to a BB for Bone and Ecru and Beige (or whatever lacklustre shadow names they have there!!!)
